OCR Chemistry A Exam Thread (Breadth - May 27 2016 and Depth - June 10 2016) watch

safe to revise everything basically
Yeah definitely.. There will definitely be miles and volumes (which came up on the first paper but can come again) there might be titrations,
Just hoping for a 6 marker on mass and IR spectroscopy in one question
2. Anyone know how to do this, I know its pv=nrt but can't get the answer when I work it out

2.15 dm3 of an unknown gas had a mass of 5.2 g at 18°C and a pressure of 101 kPa.Calculate the relative molecular mass of the gas and suggest what gas it could be.

Re-arrange pV = nRT to find n (the number of moles of the gas). Then, use mass = mr * moles to find the Mr of the gas.

do you know what the answer was???

57.9357 so the Mr is 58

Yeah thats what I tried, probably got the conversions wrong, thanks anyway

that is exactly what I got.

= 101000 x (2.16 x 10^-3)
---------------------------------------------
8.314 x 291

= 0.089755 moles

5.2
---------------
0.089755
= 57.935

but on the periodic table that is not a gas.
do u think it might be a diatomic gas or co2 etc

is there any other info given in that question??

OHHH that was actually so simple lol woops, and its continued off this long question so its butane gas (its from the ocr b specimen depth paper if you're curious)

First convert all the units to what they need to be:
2.15dm^3=0.00215m^3 (divided by 1000 to get from dm^3-m^3)
18°C=273+18K=291K
101kPa=101,000Pa

Now rearrange the equation to make n the subject:
n = pv/rt = (101000*0.00215)/(291*8.314) = 0.08975...
now use the formula n=m/Mr
so Mr = m/n = 5.2/0.08975 = 57.9
so the gas could be butane C4H10 as it has Mr of 58

oh right. yeah cos i was wondering how am I supposed to find out the name of the gas with no other information, anyway thanks

do u know at what point the alkane is a gas, liquid etc. thanks

how well do u think u did in the chemistry breadth paper? and also do u do biology?
13. (Original post by 11...)
Nobody has got a copy of the breadth, since it has to be used for mock exams next year. But i have no idea how there are proper unofficial mark schemes for maths. but arsey no longer writes them like the proper ones with the questions and answers
You can actually receive a paper 24 hours after an exam has finished

I think I did ok. messed up a bit on the MCQ's cos I dont like them. And yes I do biology. I thought chem breadth was easier than bio.
15. Good luck for tomorrow everyone
16. when explaining the boiling point trend in alcohols, should you talk about induced dipole-dipole interactions (London Forces?) as well as the hydrogen bonding?
17. (Original post by Book-Girl)

Yes, mention both to reinforce the fact that energy is required not only to overcome and break just london forces but also the hydrogen bond formed by the hydroxyl groups of the alcohols. They could ask you to compare the bp trend in alcohols related to alkanes and in this case you state the bonds needed to be overcome in both.
18. With electronegativity questions, would it be better I wrote about the specific dipole-dipole interactions or just say van der Waals' or London forces?

Also, just to clarify, are van der Waals' referring to induced and permanent and London only induced?

The way we have been taught is that to state the interactions between the molecules depending on the difference in electronegativity, I don't use van der waals. I either use london forces (induced), permanent dipole-dipole interactions or hydrogen bonding

ahh okay, thank you!
